The Mental Health Association in New Jersey (MHANJ) in Union / Hudson County provides direct services to support and educate individuals with mental health challenges and their family members.
The MHANJ is a statewide non-profit organization that strives for mental health for children and adults through advocacy, education, training, and services. Since 1948, the MHANJ has fulfilled its mission by responding to issues raised by consumers of mental health services, working for changes and promoting policies that protect their rights and fighting the stigma that makes mental health recovery difficult. The MHANJ also provides a program that directly assists consumers in need, reducing the strain on limited government resources.
We continue to be a driving force through our advocacy efforts, working to ensure that mental health consumers have a voice.
